The Teal Files: The Positively Teal Campaign for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month 2012


Jun08

Hi!

I came across the Positively Teal Campaign while looking for something and I remembered my chum Jerlaine alerting me to it sometime back too. As with the Earth Day campaign, I thought it would be a lovely way to show solidarity with the movement and spread the word, with a little series on the blog - The Teal Files will showcase teal-coloured makeup, nail lacquers and whatever else teal I can find :) It helps that Teal is one of my favourite shades too!

Here's a little background on Ovarian Cancer:

  • reports by the Singapore Cancer Society show that it is one of the deadliest gynaecologic cancer among Singapore women

 

  • 1 in 80 women face ovarian cancer in their lifetime

 

  • diagnosis can be difficult since there are a gamut of symptoms - not all symptoms are unique to ovarian cancer since symptoms like flatulence, bloatedness, enlarged abdomen and so on are linked to other minor indigestion-related ailments. For more details on symptoms, click HERE

  • If the symptoms are persistent and one is at a higher risk - such as family history of the disease, early menarche and late menopause and so on - then a thorough check up by a doctor is necessary and may be able to detect any lumps or tumours. Early detection is always the best option.

The point of the POSITIVELY TEAL Campaign is to educate women to be alert to changes in their bodies and not to be afraid to monitor and have checks done to ensure that they are either in the clear or can commence treatment if required.

In this first installment of The Teal Files, I showcase a teal pigment and liquid eyeliner


The soft teal-green pigment, Sea Breeze is from Make Up Store's Coral Collection for Summer 2012. Teal Mania liquid eyeliner from LA Splash has been on my radar for a long time and I finally picked it up this week!



For the teal to pop, I used a deep navy blue on the lid - for that, I chose L'Oreal Infallible in All Night Blue. I applied Sea Breeze to the outer crease and blended it into my highlight. I drew a slightly thicker winged eyeliner and then lined the lower lashline (underneath the lashes) with Teal Mania.

And here is the whole look ...



I like pairing Teals with pinks for lips and cheeks. On my cheeks, I used Illamasqua Hussy Powder Blush and Bobbi Brown Shimmebrick in Rose Gold. And for the lips, I used MAC Mehr lipstick, topped off with Chanel Glossimer in Mica (131).

Together, we can make a difference - spread the word and let's be Posi-Teal :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
